Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Clinical psychologist Stevenson, Gwendolyn Davis, a social worker and psychologist, and Saburah Abdul-Kabir, a community outreach coordinator at the University of Pennsylvania's Community Outreach Through Parental Empowerment program, have collaborated on Stickin' to, Watchin' Over, and Gettin' With, a guide about discipline for African American parents. The authors suggest a trifold approach to discipline: showing love and affection, being involved with children and community, and providing correction and accountability. Addressing preschoolers, school-age children, preadolescents, and teenagers, they clearly explain how to help children deal with racism and how parenting is different for African Americans. Many of the same strengths identified by Harris (e.g., community involvement, sense of heritage, affection, and hope) are reiterated here. References and resource lists are appended. Both books are enthusiastically recommended. Kay Brodie, Chesapeake Coll., Wye Mills, MD

From Booklist

The African proverb that it takes a village to raise a child figures prominently in this book that looks at cultural factors that can be used to successfully raise black children. The authors, with a broad array of expertise in education and child psychology, explore cultural differences in childrearing and strategies used by black parents to balance the need to protect children from racial encounters against the need to encourage them in spite of racism. The authors advise black parents to "process their own personal racial issues" in order to effectively teach their children. Also examined is the use of discipline and nonverbal communication by black parents who fear that their children's behavior will be judged harshly. Following the basic philosophy on childrearing, the book is divided into age-appropriate issues from preschool through the teen years. Much of the practical advice offered to parents is based on the African philosophy that the highest form of knowledge is self-knowledge. This book will appeal to black parents looking beyond general parenting books. Vanessa Bush

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Ardmom on October 14, 2008
Format: Paperback
I highly recommend this book for both African American parents and professionals who work with African American families. It's co-written by two mental health professionals and a parent, so different viewpoints are incorporated. It's an interesting read, and it provides some practical parenting strategies for raising healthy, happy children with strong African American identities. It also grapples with tough issues like the pros and cons of spanking, and preparing kids to deal with the racism they encounter.
